One main object of this volume is to set forth the power, beauty, wealth, and wit of language that Francis Bacon possessed, ever since Dr. Samuel Johnson refreshed the English language with sparkling drops of the future when he said: âA Dictionary of the English language might be compiled from Baconâs works alone.â

Subject: A Great Achievement : Baconian Reference Book
There is plenty to discover in the invaluable Baconian Reference Book. The book will be enjoyed by all admirers of Francis Bacon and those that love the entomology of words, or if you want to know about Bacon's colleagues, or the numerous commentators of his work and what his contemporaries from the Elizabethan period thought. There is something for everyone. The Baconian Reference Book is a comprehensive encyclopedia like tool to understanding the wide variety of subjects that touched Francis Bacon's curious mind while bringing to light the magnificent proficiency in vocabulary that his mind possessed. Every reference librarian in the world should order a copy for their university. The author deserves great credit for manifesting this labor of love and for making a digital edition available at archive.org.
